Living in Rockville, MD
With its origins dating back to colonial times, Rockville is one of Maryland's oldest cities. After Montgomery County was formed succeeding the Revolutionary War, The community came to be known as Williamsburg, but the city eventually settled on Rockville by the turn of the 19th century due to its close location to Rock Creek. The community remained rural and small until the late 1800s after the first branch of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad passed through the area, stimulating the local economy.
The beginning of the 20th century saw steady growth until after World War II, when the population exploded. Due to D.C.'s suburban boom in the latter half of the 1900s, the city limits of Rockville spread south, increasing the population from nearly 7,000 in 1950 to nearly 45,000 in 1980. Despite its staggering growth, Rockville has remained a quiet, leisurely oasis in the Washington, D.C. area.
